Rec on the Go

Join us for a fun-filled summer of free recreation activities with Rec on the Go programs throughout Brooklyn Park!

About Rec on the Go

Two buses are coming to 15 locations this Summer!

Rec on the Go is a FREE program that brings recreation opportunities to youth (5-12 years old) all over Brooklyn Park. This year we will be the most sites ever with 8 parks and 7 apartment communities. Activities will include group games, team building challenges, sports, arts & crafts and science.

The Rec on the Go team will also be distributing free snacks/meals to participants and families. Last summer we distributed over 47,000 meals to meet the needs of youth and families in our community.
